Your little one will enjoy touching different textures which are small just right for the little fingures. Plus the book is quite sturdy and can hold up well to numerous page turnings.
If your little one loves pop-up books, she’d be thrilled about opening the flaps and seeking out what’s behind in this book. This book is a lift the flap journey counting through a spooky house! While the flaps are not as thick and sturdy as one would expect in a book for the littlest readers, with supervision from an adult this makes an adorable little book.
